What does true diversification look like right now for multi-asset investors?

In a world that is experiencing sudden shifts between different economic scenarios, building an investment portfolio has arguably become more challenging. And even for those multi-asset investors, whose strategies are meant to offer flexibility to meet investment goals with broad options for investing across sectors, and more diversification than other investment strategies, can they really rely on how they have always done things?
